I come here every year around 10 November for the Early Music Festival. The 'painted hall' is taken over by exhibitors displaying (and playing) everything from shawms to harpsichords. Amazing atmosphere, and beautiful buildings, all overlooking the Thames. And Greenwich itself is so vibrant and colourful, with so much to interest. Not to be missed.
I love walking through here - when it a Naval College it was closed to the public, but now the building is shared by Trinity/Laban Music College and Greenwich University. Great to hear the students practising as you walk by. Wonderful architecture (Sir Christoher Wren) and river views.
